A few months ago, I started collecting the graphic novels to have the hard copies on my bookshelf. I'd read them all digitally, but only owned a couple. I added a bunch of books to my Amazon wishlist, including a black and gold hard-cover of "The Grey Witch." I hadn't read the page thoroughly, and I thought that it was a fancy edition of the graphic novel. Much to my surprise, when it arrived, it was a translation of the first light novel! I've been a little out of the loop of the fandom, so I hadn't heard about it coming out (though I think it kind of flew in under the radar anyway).

If you want it for yourself, you can find it on Amazon here:…

I finally got around to reading it during my summer break (I'm a creative writing major, and along with writing, that means a LOT of assigned reading). It was an easy and quick read, which I assume is pretty much a direct translation without much stylistic shift from the writer who did the adaptation. The book also contains a number of Izubuchi illustrations, some of which illustrating scenes as they happen in the novel. It is a very beautifully arranged book--the cover is simple and classic, the formatting is stylistic and attractive, and the illustrations are a nice touch.

The novel certainly fits the definition of "light" as well. The language is very simple and easy to read (very young-adult level, I would say a pre-teen or adolescent could easily read it, but there is a little violent content). It definitely reads as a play-by-play of a D&D game, just streamlined with the technicalities of dice-rolls removed. However, the narrative has some issues that as an academic, bother me. Tension is easily diffused, a lot of information is relayed directly to us rather than being shown, and it all reads very surface level. For my love of the series, I can get past this. I'm happy to learn more about the world and characters. The book offered me a deeper understanding of Lodoss than I had gleaned from the anime and manga. However, the anime and manga definitely streamlined the narrative and presented a more cohesive and deeper story. I would definitely recommend this novel to fans of the series who want to know it better, but maybe not for those who aren't invested in the series.

I do hope more of the novels are translated and I will absolutely scoop them up when they're out!
